Maxi skirts look good on everyone, irrespective of your body shape and size. These are my pick of the season. Here, I tell you the 8 essential reasons for grabbing maxi skirts for your wardrobe, right now!
- Ethnic maxi skirts can save you from monotony on days you don’t wanna don a chudidar kurta or salvaar-kamiz!
Bored of wearing the typical kurta-jeans combo, or those run-of-the-mill patialas? These ethnic skirts would rescue you! Wear these with a crop top or a full sleeved plain tee, and wrap your dupatta like you would with your kurta-chudidar set. You’ll be the talk of the town!
- Wear the same ethnic maxi skirt with a racer-back or a spaghetti to punk up the look!
If you don’t wanna play safe, then play funky! A racer-back would add oomph to the sombre ethnic maxi skirt. Load up on accessories, wear your flat kolhapuris and you’re good to go.
- A plain black/blue maxi skirt would complement every printed top in your wardrobe!
All you girls would agree, we are always short of options when it comes to clothes. I just can’t bear to wear jeans in this humid weather, so a plain black maxi skirt has saved me on days when I didn’t know what to wear with a bright top. You don’t need to thank me for this suggestion! Just buy one plain maxi skirt in a neutral color!
- You can ‘up’ the glamour with slit maxi skirts!
A maxi skirt can have a slit as high as you like! I personally prefer small slits, but the adventurous girls can go for knee-high slits, or even higher if you’re in the mood 🙂 They don’t look vulgar as you’re covered enough. But you shouldn’t wear a revealing top if you’re exposing some skin through slits!
- Wrap it up with wraparounds!
I love wrap-around skirts, they are so versatile! I have worn them with printed tees, shirts and jackets! You can go for straight wraparound skirts, or flared ones, both look amazing. Plus, they kind of give you a slight feel of wearing a saree 😛
- Pleated maxi skirts are all-the-rage!
Trust me on this, an accordion-pleated maxi skirt exudes sophistication, grace and is extremely feminine! And when the skirt blows a bit with the breeze, it seems musically magical! I don’t think these will go out of fashion anytime soon, so this is definitely worth investing in 🙂
- Denim maxi skirt is timeless….
If you do manage to find a denim maxi skirt, don’t let it go! This piece, according to me, is going to remain hot for years to come. Plus, you can wear it all year round: during summers, with a light breezy top and gladiator sandals or sneakers. In winters, all you need to do is wrap yourself in a leather jacket and boots! I have been searching for a denim maxi for months now…do let me know if you have any clue where to find them 🙂
- Tube maxi skirts are the hottest fashion item this year
If there is one fashionable thing to have engaged people of all ages this year, it has to be tube skirts with slits. I first spotted them at Zara this year, and it didn’t take me long to find these in the flea markets! I have seen girls of all ages sporting these: from school-going teens to 50 year old women! These are extremely casual and comfortable for a day out. Plus, you can find them in solid hues, stripes, Aztec designs and more!
So what are you waiting for? Chuck those jeans, fold away those pants, and say hello to maxi skirt! Make them your best friend, they are totally worth it 🙂
